Cole Harbour hockey superstar Nathan MacKinnon is bringing the Stanley Cup to Halifax later this month, where fans will celebrate his win with a parade in the city’s downtown.
In an Instagram post, MacKinnon announced the Stanley Cup parade will begin at noon on Aug. 20 outside the Scotiabank Centre.
“Halifax, can’t wait to see you all for the parade!” said MacKinnon in the post, adding that there will be a Q&A session outside city hall after the parade at 1 p.m.
The parade will begin on Brunswick Street at the Scotiabank Centre. The route will proceed down Brunswick Street, right on Spring Garden Road, right on South Park Street, right on Sackville Street, left on Brunswick Street, and right on Carmichael Street — finishing outside Grand Parade square.
